Back to our regularly scheduled lives  

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Well, we managed to survive the first full week back to school. The girls are really happy to be back in class with their friends. Connor has made some new friends and one of them is a girl, oh my!

Sam has wanted to be in band this year so we decided that she should play the flute. Size and money wise the best choice. I rented one today and managed to get it for under $20/month. Boy, am I glad I talked her out of orchestra. Connor dabbled with the cello for four months. That was really painful.

Both girls are back at the pool for lessons. They are now in group four. They are learning more advanced things like flipping and pushing off the wall. I spent Thursday watching the instructor flip his head every 2 minuets. I assume he was trying to get the water out of his ears or maybe get his hair out of his face, tho his hair isn't very long. It just really irritated me. It was so exaggerated that I thought he was just doing it to get attention. Why he would do that I don't know, there isn't anyone there to impress but a bunch of little kids.

My friend Anna and I were installed as Council Members in the Guardians Council at the local Jobs Daughters Bethel. I am the new Director of Paraphernalia. That means I oversee the properties of the Bethel. Since Sam is a member I want to support her activities and Lyd will be joining up next year. It's a great organization that the girls and I can both benefit from.

I'm looking forward to a trip to Auburn in Oct. That will be adult leadership training so Sam will be staying home.

That's all for today.
